journey groups

In a Journey Group, people study God's word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. 

It's also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don't show up. 

That's why Journey Groups are such an important part of our discipleship strategy. Success at theWELLbuffalo is defined by how effectively people move from our larger Gatherings into Journey Groups. It’s not enough to just come...

We want you to engage when you are ready!

We believe intentional relationships are the key to sustained spiritual growth. Starting with God & Others Practically speaking, there will never be a way for the staff or elders to personally minister to everyone who will attend our gatherings. That's why we place such a high premium on Journey Group life. It's how we will minister effectively at theWELLbuffalo. 

Everything is about relationships, the rest is just details.

Ground rules

ACCOUNTABILITY: I’ll show up every week unless I’m out of town or I’ve let the host know the (good) reason I will be absent.

PREPARATION: Before each meeting, I’ll have listened to the weekend conversation, and have spent some time reading and reflecting upon God's Word.

AFFIRMATION: I acknowledge that every person in this group is at a different point in considering, seeking or following Jesus, and I will value and affirm people for where they are.

CONFIDENTIALITY: I’ll maintain complete confidentiality. What I hear and say in the group stays in the group.

LISTENING: I understand that others will need to be encouraged to share, to be open and to express emotion. I will let them do so, without being judgmental, trying to “fix” them or offering unsolicited advice.

SELF-AWARENESS: I understand that some of us are talkers and some are quieter, so I’ll be aware of not dominating the discussion or always leaving the weight of it to others.

VULNERABILITY: I’ll stretch myself to be as open and honest as I can with my perspectives and experience to create a safe environment that might encourage others to take risks, too.

CONFLICT: Community can be very messy, and conflicts may arise. I’ll offer grace to others and won’t leave the group over disagreements, realizing that God might use conflict in my spiritual formation in some way I don’t currently understand.
